The Desperate need for Melodies in Video Games

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What makes old school OSTs of video games like Final Fantasies, Chrono Trigger, or modern classics like Twilight Princess or Celeste have such memorable, and impactful music? Join this group as we listen through some of the greatest music ever written for video games, and talk about why we should return to techniques that seem to have been all but forgotten in the modern VGM landscape.
